The Al-Shabab attack on Nairobi, Kenya‘s Westgate shopping centre is a reminder about who Western leaders are helping in Syria. While the Syrian conflict is terrible for innocent civilians, the ‘West’ should not provide any help to rebels containing al-Quaeda elements. Their ‘help’ would soon filter down to groups like Al-Shabab, and other groups trying to Islamise Africa.
Hi, it’s Wolf Whitzer, intrepid satirical comedy newshound at the Greenygrey with an unfortunately very serious news report.
Framing Syria in History
While Western leaders were trying to build support for action against Assad in Syria they framed the conflict with WWII historical references.
Top British and American leaders compared their decision on Syria to that which the Allies faced with the Nazis in 1938: warning of the dangers of appeasement, and Assad’s alleged use of chemical weapons to the Nazis’ gassing of nearly 6 million people during World War II.
Al-Shabab Kenya Attack Shows Syria Complexity
However, even if Assad did use chemical weapons there is no good side in Syria to support, with the rebels infiltrated by Islamic Fundamentalists like the Al-Shabab who attacked Nairobi, Kenya‘s Westgate shopping centre this weekend.
Their singling out of non-Muslims (the inferior kafir non-believers, white and non-white to Islamists) for execution is reminiscent of the Nazis’ persecution of undesirables, and should awaken those thinking of helping them in Syria up to the reality of who they would be supporting.
Al-Quaeda are the Nazis to be Isolated
Assad’s Syrian government might have similarities to the Nazis, but the al-Quaeda inspired rebels have more; and more hatred of non-Muslim kafirs.
We should remember that we (non-Muslims) are all considered inferior to them, and they want to martyr themselves because they believe they are going somewhere better; somewhere very similar to the Christian heaven written in the bible about 500 years before their heaven became known.
The ‘West’ should view all al-Quaeda groups like the Nazis before World War II, and not provide any appeasement or support to them. That means staying out of Syria.
